TROLLHUNTER

Directed by André Øvredal
FEATURE NARRATIVE 103 Minutes New York Premiere
FILM GUIDE TROLLHUNTER

In André Øvredal's high-energy monster movie, novice filmmakers Thomas, Johanne, and Kalle set out to make a student film investigating a series of unexplained bear poaching incidents plaguing the snowy Norwegian countryside. Their investigation quickly implicates Hans, a shadowy loner who unexpectedly invites the trio into his world, revealing the poaching epidemic as an orchestrated cover for Hans' top-secret work managing the country's rampant and unruly troll population. From there, TROLLHUNTER is a nonstop wild ride as the group investigates the mysterious depletion of the troll populace and begins to uncover a covert government conspiracy, all smartly contextualized in a comic-edged play on Norway's real folk mythology.

Purporting to be the now-missing students' recovered footage, TROLLHUNTER presents an unrelenting, adrenaline-pumping collage of troll mayhem, making for a fantastical entry in the current "found-footage" genre, and an eye-popping revitalization of the classic creature feature. At once an action-adventure story, a horror film, and a deadpan Scandinavian comedy, TROLLHUNTER will rivet viewers beginning to end with its dynamic, utterly original vision.
